We have all been there — those first few years as we leave childhood into adolescence — when everything seems to be a challenge, when the world seems to be against you and when you just hate everyone. The world of Kevin, the teenage character created by comedian Harry Enfield, was too close to the truth for many parents, but peel away the grunts, the what ifs, the anger and the uncertainty — and for most of us there is a youngster, your child — and he or she needs help. Believe it or not there are dozens of self-help books for teens available to assist them through those periods of low self-esteem.
Let's face it, in today's world teenagers need all the help they can get. These self-help books will aid your teenage daughter during the trying times of adolescence, and parents can get a few tips from them too! From teens of every age, including women who remember what it was like, come stories of first love, first jobs, best friends, heartbreak, hope, innocence, and the real world.
The best thing we can do as parents is to compassionately support our struggling teens, letting them know we value their mental health as much as their physical health. We hope these books give your teen practical ideas and encouragement. We believe in books but realize that sometimes a book is not enough.

The idea of books as my own set of secret worlds has been life-saving more than once since. Though I am not from a mixed religious heritage, I am from a devout Christian background, and I spent a lot of time questioning my faith and God. Her pain was my pain, and the questions she asked were the ones I wanted answering.
